Galaxidi is the synonym to nobility, elegance, taste, tranquility and pleasure. This place has a unique charm. It combines:
Arrival in Galaxidi and free day to enjoy the place and your walk.
Route 1: Ancient Delphi Trail and treasure hunt game at the Oracle of Delphi
After a full breakfast I suggest a walk to Delphi.
This walk is wonderful from the beginning and with a wonderful view. It is also quite demanding. First you go up the stairs, then follow a path until you reach the Stairs of Delphi: the ancient path from the Oracle of Delphi to the Cave of Andron Koryki. You can walk as much as you want and return through the same path to a point. Then you follow a different path to Delphi. The further you go the more fascinating the landscape and the view is, of the Ancient site, Mount Parnassos and the Gulf of Corinth.
Total distance hiking challenge:8 km
If you don't want to walk you can go with your family or friends to the archeological site of the Oracle of Delphi to play "treasure hunt" following the text provided at the ActiveNAV App. Of course you can do both.
Activity duration: Depends on the participants
Shortly before departure, the hostess of the accommodation will give you instructions and recipes of local cuisine such as kelemia, homemade pies and local sweets. You will also try Chutneys, jams, liqueurs and pastries that she makes herself and you can take with you.

GANIMEDE HOTEL, GALAXIDI
Ganimede Hotel is located in a quiet place in the center of Galaxidi, just 5 minutes from its famous picturesque harbor with wonderful colorful neoclassical buildings, traditional shops and crowded beautiful cafes & restaurants. It is a 19th century captain's house with an idyllic courtyard. In 2003, Costas & Chrysoula Papalexi took over the hotel from the previous owner, Bruno Perrocco, who offered first-class services since 1966. Chrysoula continued the tradition, offering homemade jams and chutney, based on recipes inherited from Bruno, adding new aromas and flavors. Over the years, the hotel has gained an excellent international reputation and Chrysoula has become accustomed to welcoming guests from all over the world. Chrysoula is the hostess you would like to find in every hotel. She personally takes care of the preparation and serving of the breakfast that made her famous and always caters her guests with a smile.
2 nights stay, possibility for additional overnights

For your own comfort and convenience I think you need a car on this trip.
If you are relaxed and do not drive, you could go by bus to Galaxidi and visit Delphi also by bus. It has at least 3 departures per day and you reduce your ecological footprint as well.
